  • The writers spent such a long time trying to come up with a way that Kat and Adena could hook up in the airport, that they basically had Kat buy the first class ticket for that reason. [1]
  • In the Incite article, they photoshopped show creator Sarah Watson's actual protest sign from the Women's March into the main photo. [2]


- The episodes writer, Lynn Sternberger, used her own experiences from her marriage when writing Kat and Adena as her now wife was not a US citizen when they first got together. She had also previously worked with Aisha Dee on another project.
